Pacificorp was a great work place
Transmission Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Portland, OROctober 30, 2018
Pacificorp offered a excellent benefit package and work place environment was great. There was plenty time for training allowing you to earn your 200 CEH per 3 years in house.

Don't expect to be promoted
Sr. Administrative Services Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Portland, OROctober 10, 2018
Advancement is practically impossible. Management is constantly changing with people from the outside. The succession management is a complete joke. Don't think you'll be groomed or promoted. Dead end job.
Pros
telecommute days
Cons
No advancment opportunites

Decent company decent benefits
Meter reader (Current Employee) –  Astoria, ORJuly 11, 2018
Decent company with decent benefits. The ability to transfer to numerous locations if test scores apply. Downside sometimes I step over dollars to pick up dimes. Meter reading is going away which is left a lot of people scrambling with a sinking ship. Would be ideal if the company helped assist in finding other positions.
Pros
Decent pay scale
Cons
Competing with other union members for positions even if test scores are better

Not Enjoyable Workplace
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORJuly 11, 2018
Management is average at best, pay and benefits are below market and atmosphere is not enjoyable.

Training is extensive, but more tenured employees don't seem to welcome or appreciate newer employees.

Used to be great place to work, I would not recommend it to anyone!
Journeyman Lineman (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORMay 20, 2018
I would rate this place as hostile, stressful, and very negative in all aspects. You can and will be fired for anything. They do not want to fix problems just tell the employees it is your choice to come thru the door if you do not like the company.
Pros
Union, if not for that you would not be paid and conditions would be worse than they are now.
Cons
Management rules by bullying tactics, no backbone to stand up for any employee

Horrible work environment
Clerk (Former Employee) –  Point of Rocks, WYApril 11, 2018
There is no advancement in this company and management is a joke. All they do is tell you what you do wrong never what you do right. Will write you up without a care in the world. Employees will throw you under the bus in a second and there is no team playing.
Pros
Money
Cons
everything

Started as Engineer and ended as Maintenance Planner Scheduler
Maintenance Engineer/Planner (Former Employee) –  Glenrock, WYMarch 24, 2018
I started fresh out of college and worked at a coal fired power plant for 11.5 years. Enjoyed my time there and worked with some very good people. I learned high pressure steam plant maintenance and repair as well as maintenance management fundamentals. I was very fully involved with the development and implementation of the maintenance management system and Pdm program implementation at the plant. Very enjoyable.
Pros
Simple process and good place to gain experience
Cons
Not much for Product Quality in production

Excellent place to work. Loved working for them
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Grants Pass, ORFebruary 19, 2018
This is an excellent employer to work for with the highest standards.
Safety is priority number one. They treat their employees very well, and are union.

Management has an open door policy which is nice. Great pay, great benefits, great coworkers and customers are great most of the time too.

If you have an opportunity to work here jump on it.
Pros
catered safety lunches, paid training, overtime opportunities to make good money.
Cons
working in the rain if you work outside, upset customers when power goes out.

I enjoy working at Pacificorp. It is a great environment. The learning curve was excellent.

Walking on egg shells
Lineman (Former Employee) –  WyomingFebruary 2, 2018
Company seems to make it up as they go, real lack of consistency when it comes to how someone is punished- two guys could do the same thing but with completely different consequences. Managers will be buddy buddy until their @55 is on the hot seat, if they get a chance you'll be the first one under the bus.
Pros
pay isnt the best, but it's good, and guys are good to work with
Cons
Management makes a non-friendly work enviorment

Everyone good ends up leaving
Carreer Buyer (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJanuary 22, 2018
I believe someone told me PacifiCorp was from the Pan to the Flames and it couldn't be more true. This place had such high turnover. You always had to look behind you and see if you were next. All the good ones left and if they stayed they were eventually weeded out. We all ended up going to BPA and PGE and still have inside jokes about our previous survival at PacifiCorp.

Senior Project Manager / Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Portland, OR 97232January 16, 2018
I was there for 6 years and learned a lot. I took advantage of the online training courses they offered. The company benefits were ok with the exception of the high deductible medical insurance. There were a few, not many, that are/were in management that had no business being in management.
Pros
Benefits, time off
Cons
High deductible health insurance Poor management

Very reasonable place to work
Customer Service Employee (Former Employee) –  Portland, OR 97232January 9, 2018
This is fine place to work. The pace can get hectic and stressful and mandatory overtime every week for over a year can be tiring. The wage and benefits package are very nice.
